Default New guy - Just moved and back in it.

Just moved back to NY from Los Angeles to help out the family with their business (Aerospace).

I didn't do any boarding for the 12 years I was in Los Angeles but with all the snow falling I got the itch to get back to the mountain. Saved up some cash and picked up a decent board, bindings and some killer boots. Looking forward to carving it up with my friends.

When I first tried boarding it was on a very icy day. I didn't catch on much and even sprained a rib from falling. That night 30" fell and it was as if I had been boarding all my life. All my waterskiing, windsurfing and skateboarding experience helped a ton.

Great forum. I appreciate all you with experience giving advice and plenty to read and learn about.

Welcome back to the ice coast.

How did you not do any boarding while you were out west? Almost like a wasted opportunity.

Thanks for the welcome.
When I look back I was escaping the cold. Was all about sand and sun. Did a lot of dune riding at Pismo and Duhmont. Also quite a bit of jetskiing at pyramid lake. Cool place. Lake in the middle of the desert.

Wish I did do some boarding. I missed out on that for sure.

Hope you find some snow.
